One often sees people recommending facials based on skin type. In fact, any time you go to get a facial, your skin type and current condition will be the first to be considered. To make an informed decision, one must know how different facials work on different skin types. But first, let us see what exactly happens in a facial.
Facial is a procedure whereby the face’s skin is replenished using different methods. It is a step-by-step ritual, beginning with deep cleansing, then a thorough exfoliation to remove all dead cells, moisturising and a relaxing massage, and ending with a mask. A well-done facial following all these procedures may do wonders for the skin. In addition, the facial helps improve skin condition and blood circulation and relaxes the facial muscles. The many benefits of a facial will soon be revealed to you.
Out of these, oily skin is the most complex facial selection. But only if you don’t have the correct information with you.
If you have oily skin, you should avoid any heavy cream-based facials. Instead, fruit facials or facials with natural extracts are the best things to go for in the summer if you have oily skin.
Gentle exfoliation, toning and a fruit mask will do wonders for your skin and leave it soft and supple. No matter what skin type, it is always better to research and go for facials that suit your skin type or a particular skin problem.
We understand that most salons do not classify their facials based on skin type; hence, it is sometimes confusing to choose. Your beautician will help you with the selection, but here are a few common types of facials found at most salons. Let us decipher a few basic things to help you make a better decision.

Let us answer some commonly asked questions to resolve all your queries!
1. How often should facials be done?
Ideally, one should opt for a facial every four to six weeks or once a month, as it helps in catalyzing the growth of skin cells.
2. Which facial is best for oily skin in summer?
Decongesting or deep-cleaning facials are the best options as it helps in effective cleaning, toning, and rejuvenating the face.
3. How do facials help?
Facials help in cleaning the face and removing black and white heads. Next, it aids in renewing skin cells by circulating blood flow under the skin which in turn reduces toxins, tightens the skin, and helps in complete relaxation and de-stressing. Massaging, which is one of the final steps, helps in activating the pressure points, which further improves the skin’s condition.
4. What are the Benefits of a Facial, and how long do they last?
Facials help in stimulating collagen production, de-tanning, increasing elasticity, removing toxins, increasing absorption of other skin products, and completely rejuvenating oneself. A facial usually lasts 60-90 minutes, and the effects of a facial last for a week.
5. How to choose the right facial for your skin type?
You should choose the type of facial based on your skin type and how it caters to the needs of your skin. For example, for dry skin, a moisturising facial is apt; for combination skin, mild products are best; for oily skin, deep cleansing and pore reduction are best; for sensitive skin, gentle and oxygen-rich ones. Thus, based on the skin type and kind of products used, you should opt for the facial that best suits you!
